The Early Years

We started The Sugar Rats in 2011 when we saw the need for kiddies escorted rides on the awesome Holla Trails.  Every week we would go out riding and the kids stayed and played in the gardens as they were all too little to join us.

So one day a couple of us took the kids out instead and of course it was a huge hit.  The Sugar Rats Cycling Academy was born.  A brand was created, a cool cycling shirt, weekly rides and monthly Spur Kiddies Fun Races all at Holla Trails.

The sport of MTBing was really taking off in South Africa and parent’s were only too happy to drop their kiddies off under our watchful care and know they were also learning all about MTBing too.
